Plot:
Julia is having problems breast-feeding Conor and snaps at a nurse who attempts to help him. Sean tries to help her understand the benefits of breast-feeding to the baby, especially in light of the surgeries, but Julia also snaps at him, accusing him of judging her an thinking she’s a bad mother. She believes she may be suffering from post-partum depression and perhaps should be on some kind of medication to help her with it. Meanwhile, Christian is in a consult with Shari Noble, a woman whose dog (a pit-bull mix) has bitten her nipple off. She is very insistent that it should look like nothing has happened as her husband is coming back from Iraq and will put the dog down if he finds out about the attack

As Liz and Christian prepare for surgery on Shari, Michelle comes in to see him. He makes a lewd comment to Michelle and Michelle responds by rescinding her offer for Christian to take her to the fundraiser, as Burt is feeling better. Whilst in surgery, Christian and Liz bond over their mutual attraction to Michelle. Liz mentions the ‘gaming’ that goes on in lesbian bars and admits that it’s been a year and a half since she last had a date. Christian offers to coach her and asks what she’s doing Saturday night.

As Shari Noble has a follow-up consult with Christian, her husband Mark comes in to see her. She seems very surprised and a little agitated to see him back so early. Mark seems to be very upset that he’s found an open jar of peanut butter by Shari’s bed. It turns out that Shari was using the peanut butter to seduce her dog. Mark has brought his duffel bag with it, which contains the dog’s dead body.
